damage, i mean, the dinosaurs kind of damage, perhaps. hours before a meteor broke apart over russia. there are incredible pictures. i mean, no wonder people thought this was a ufo. can you imagine seeing that? streaking across the sky above the ural region in russia? there was chaos, there was panic, caught on camera. >> unbelievable. the powerful blast was enough to shatter windows and doors. about 1,000 people were reportedly injured. 3,000 buildings were damaged and windows completely blown out. tom foreman is "outfront." tom, what happened this morning in russia? i didn't believe when it i first saw it. we were covering the "triumph," and we said, ufo? could this be true? >> what happened is the russians got a very rude awakening. this meteor exploded 30 miles up in the atmosphere, above one of their more northern cities here, the impact was really huge considering this thing wasn't that big in terms of things flying through space. let's talk about the size of it, about ten tons which sounds like a lot but that's not a lot in space. about ten feet long. traveling 33,000 miles pe

russia last week left behind some destruction. thousands of people were injured, windows were blown out, and the pictures were incredible, and it also left behind thousands of tiny meteorites. phil black is in the mountains where professionals and amateurs alike for all looking for a piece of the pie. >> erin, this was the point of impact. they say this is where part of that meteor slammed through the ice of this frozen lake. they have been searching this area. around here, they have found 53 separate small fragments of that meteorite. they believe there could be bigger pieces beneath the ice, beneath the water on the bottom of this lake. the ice here is really thick. this lake is frozen for about six months of the year. but locals say that the impact created a huge explosion of ice and snow high up into the air and a big steam cloud as well. up on the surface, scientists have been combing this whole area, so fragments have been found on the surface, a bigger mystery remains, what lies beneath the ice? scientists are pretty sure there are even bigger fragments now sitting beneath the ic

smaller one last week over russia. kaku says the nation-busting asteroid headed our way won't arrive until 2036 but it could make a direct hit with 1,000 times more power. "outfront" tonight, bill nye, the science guy, and rusty swigert. my guess is both of you do not buy this. bill? >> yeah, it's going to miss. mi. it's named after the greek god of anxiety will come by 2029. then again in 2036. my understanding it's 1 in 100 million chance of hitting the earth. it will miss the earth. but it's a lesson to be learned, that's all. we know about that one. but there are about 100,000 more out there that we don't know about. and i remind you, what a crazy coincidence that the one over russia happened the night before 2012, another larger object came between us and our satellites. so we're going to get hit by an ost raid sooner or later. and the doctor was just trying to draw attention to that. but it's not our worry. instead we should be worrying about the other 99,999 of them. >> rusty, you have been out in space. one of your goals in all this is to say, in fact, we should get much more serio

, is that they want to get on the same page as other neighbors in the region, the likes of south korea, china, russia and try to come together and form some statement on this. for right now, they're not issuing any comment in terms of any condemnation about this event in north korea, this morning. which as we've all said is somewhat surprising, because this event is not unexpected. we've been expecting this for several weeks now. and, of course, this follows that rocket launch back in december. john? >> we have the south korean foreign minister who, i believe, is standing by, who is joining us now. minister, could you please tell us your reaction to this news that there has possibly been a test of a nuclear device by your neighbors to the north? >> well, it was not a surprise, because north korea has said many times they would carry out a third nuclear test? >> can you confirm for us this has in fact been a test of a nuclear device? >> it's still not clear whether north korea carried out the third nuclear test or not. but the seismic effect in south korea can be interpreted as they did a nuclear test
